Today the first trains return to Kirkby railway station, just a week after an incident involving a Merseyrail unit.
Last week saw a Class 37 diesel locomotive come and re-rail the unit, 507006, and since the train left, engineers have been working hard to return the station to a usable state for Merseyrail trains to return.
Additionally, earlier than planned, Northern have been able to resume services to the station, with the 06:04 Wigan Wallgate to Kirkby being the first Northern train to arrive at the repaired station.

Passengers are being reminded to only use train services for essential travel only, full details for Merseyrail trains can be found on the Merseyrail website.
